Origin of the Tiger Paw at Clemson University, South Carolina

Origin of the Clemson Tiger Paw
Clemson University, South Carolina

Efforts to upgrade the image of the university in 1970 resulted in the assistance of Greeville's Henderson Advertising Agency.  The agency designed the paw print, an actual cast from the foot of a tiger.  The symbol of Clemson University spread like wildfire and is now reproduced on every material imaginable.  Schools and universities throughout the country have now copied this success.

This unused postcard was bought in 2011.
